1

Lots of Hostility

Is your relationship filled with hostility? Is it something that is constantly flowing between you and your partner? This is one of the top warning signs of a toxic relationship. There shouldn't be hostility in a relationship, there should be something fun and a relationship should be something that you enjoy being in, not something you dread.

2

Dirty Fighting

Is there constant name calling? Constant insults? Is the past constantly being thrown up? That's all dirty fighting and it isn't something that should ever be in a relationship. If you are with someone and you love them, you need to discuss things, not scream at each other and be ugly to each other.

3

Criticism

Is there a constant snide criticism that seems to always be in your relationship? That isn't right! There is a time and place for criticism and it shouldn't be in your relationship. Remember, the person that you love is someone that you should accept too, the good and bad. If you have an issue with your partner, talk about it!

4

Avoiding Problems

Do you constantly avoid the problems that rise up in your relationship? Do you just put them off and don't bring them up again until you are fighting about them? That's a pattern and one that isn't healthy and that you shouldn't keep up. You should attempt to work out all of your problems as they come up. This is where the discussion piece should come in!

5

You Aren't Yourself

Do you change your opinions and constantly switch up how you feel when your partner does? That isn't being you! You need to be your own person, even if you are in a relationship. Don't ever lose that. Never, ever change your opinion for anyone! If your partner can't accept you for you, why are you in a relationship with them at all?

6

Your Family Doesn't like Your Relationship

Does your family see how you and your partner treat each other? Do they like the relationship that you have built together? Do they constantly tell you that you can do better and that you should be able to do better? Well, that's a warning sign! Your family should like your relationship, how your partner treats you and how you treat your partner. There should be some kind of mutual respect there.

7

Lots of Guilt Trips

Finally, as far as the guilt trips, do you have a ton of them in your relationship? T hat could be one of the major warning signs that you and your partner are in a toxic relationship. I know it's hard to believe, but you shouldn't ever have to feel guilty in a relationship.

Toxic relationships are hard to get out of and even harder to identify. Have you ever been in a toxic relationship? Have you tried to get out of it?

13 years in one but I've reached my breaking point and have had enough. My kids and i deserve better. I just hope I can be strong enough to see it through.

What should I say I feel I'm in one right now but it's not just a relationship it's a marriage, but I don't want to leave him, because I love him way too much. We have been married for a year but we have a fight at least every other day and its always my fault in his eyes. He's a guy who is greatest in my eyes but he has a dark side,but he has a good heart.

I was in one of these for 5 years, so glad I was able to stay strong and get out.

I'm afraid that I am in one. I have been married for almost 3 years and he is a seemingly nice guy, but he can be a total jerk. I don't know what to do because I know he loves me, and I'm not sure he feels the same way but I don't want to bring it up because I think he'll get mad

I'm new to this little app I found today but this topic caught my eye as I am in a 24 yr marriage one daughter away at uni, the other at school doing exams. My other half becoming more distant for me with very little in common. I feel empty nest syndrome and unfulfilled. I have a beautiful home, both have jobs, have our health and should be looking forward to more time together but instead I keep thinking about my life being on pause. Sorry to pour it all out but my family would be biased and my friends similar coz this has happened over the past 5 years or so. We live in the same house, sleep on either of the edges of our bed and ignore each other, we've not talked for over a week now. I wish I knew what I wanted. Maybe it's over and it's the memories keeping me here :-(

This article describes my last relationship! Im so glad I am out if it now. Id like to add another ting to the list. If the person you're with seems to bring out the worst in you and you find yourself doing/saying/accepting things you normally wouldn't. Never compromise your values to make someone else happy.

Toxic relationship for 10 almost 11 years. Crazy part about the nut dumped me. He was extremely jealous and controlling. Everything had to be his way. But he always turned everything to being my fault. The controllers always have to be the one to break it off too. I just feel for who ever he runs into next. He is a loaded gun!!

My last relationship had so much guilt-tripping and hostility it was ridiculous. Five years with that douchebag. I'm still getting over it, I wish I had seen this article sooner.
